ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
thiocyanate desulfurase.
Alternative Name(s)
thiocyanate dehydrogenase.
Reaction catalysed
2 Fe(III)-[cytochrome c] + H2O + thiocyanate <=> cyanate + 2 Fe(II)-[cytochrome c] + 2 H(+) + sulfur
  • The enzyme, characterized from the haloalkaliphilic sulfur-oxidizing bacterium Thioalkalivibrio paradoxus, contains three copper ions in its active site.
  • It catalyzes the direct conversion of thiocyanate into cyanate and elemental sulfur without involvement of molecular oxygen.
